About Hawk Nelson
This young Canadian foursome was plucked from obscurity by fellow Petersborough, Ontario, native Trevor McNevan of the band Thousand Foot Krutch. McNevan introduced them to his band's label, Seattle-based Tooth & Nail, then teamed with Aaron Sprinkle to co-produce Hawk Nelson's 2004 debut, Letters to the President. Their pop-punk sound caught on with Christian audiences and beyond (imagine a friendlier, happier Green Day), and soon the boys were on their way. In 2005, the band appeared on the big screen in Yours, Mine and Ours. Promotions with NFL Sunday Night Football, Tom's Shoes and McDonald's followed. Longtime drummer Aaron Tosti left the band in 2007, but the current lineup (frontman Jason Dunn, Jonathan Steingard, Daniel Biro and newcomer Justin Benner) has carried on nicely, continuing to win friends and fans wherever they go.
